Psalms 137

The Book of Psalms


  A Psalm of David.


I will give thee thanks with my whole heart: Before the deities will I sing praises unto thee.


I will worship toward thy holy temple, And give thanks unto thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: For thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.


In the day that I called thou answeredst me, Thou didst encourage me with strength in my soul.


All the kings of the earth shall give thee thanks, O YAHUVEH, For they have heard the words of thy mouth.


Yea, they shall sing of the ways of YAHUVEH; For great is the glory of YAHUVEH.


For though YAHUVEH is high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly; But the haughty he knoweth from afar.


Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me; Thou wilt stretch forth thy hand against the wrath of mine enemies, And thy right hand will save me.


YAHUVEH will perfect that which concerneth me: Thy lovingkindness, O YAHUVEH, endureth for ever; Forsake not the works of thine own hands.

Psalms 139
